    I allways see so many bumped topics and it´s allways the same thing:
    I read it´s title which is something like "Controller Support", "/region here/ on /other region here/" or "Is this Exploitz?" and got to check inside whether it is for vWii or actual WiiU and to be honest, i mostly only look here for WiiU-Stuff since vWii has been discussed to death and barely ever gets any notable updates, anymore.

    So since the 3DS H&H has been split into 3 subcategories, why not at least split WiiU H&H in those 2?
    I don´t see any disadvantages.

    I actually second this as virtual wii is different from actual wii

    Wii, vWii, Wii. I was intending to be an a-hole when I saw the thread title but it makes sense. Where should Nintendont go? Probably with vWii. Lol.

    For now, until it's possible to port and optimize it for Wii U mode homebrew (and even then we'd make a new topic probably)
    Yeah, Marionumber1 and I have been talking about how annoying it is for a while, but nothing's ever been done about it. Any input Cyan, Costello, or FIX94? I want to get staff involved.

    you should have posted this under gbatemp site discussions instead. Just sayin'.

    btw what's the difference between the two? I don't wanna be proud of my ignorance but they sound the same. :\

    vWii is the sandboxed virtual Wii mode you can boot into, Wii U mode is what it loads when you first turn on the console. vWii works (mostly) the same as a normal wii (with a few exceptions) but Wii U mode we're working on hacking, and it's getting cluttered.

    most of the vWii threads are only software related and should go in the "Wii - Backup Loaders" or "Wii - Emulation and Homebrew", very few are related to the vWii environment.
    i think only some admin/moderation routing work is needed. and it would greatly benefit those threads because in the current WiiU section many of the readers/helpers dont care much about the vWii ability of their WiiU

    This seems like a good idea as well. Can the Wii H&H become Wii/vWii H&H and Wii/vWii-Backup Loaders? Would that work? Then you could specify when you start a thread if it's [Wii] or [vWii] or something. Just an idea.

    We probably should get rid of "Wii U hacking discussion." Change it to vWii. The choice between 10+year old games and new games people will want to play (like Zelda) will likely kill the Wii U hacking. Finding a new kernel exploit for each successive firmware update, along with a browser or user space explore will be too hard.

    GameCube emulation on vWii is done. I don't see there being a Wii U scene. Stay on old firmware to play with Mario Kart? Running programs that can be ran on PC? I think this idea is good. No need for Wii U hacking.

    Because we'd all love to be the one to sort through the convoluted mess, thread by thread, painstakingly moving each thread about the Wii U to a new section.

    Like this? Obviously it would need a new icon that appears on the homepage when someone posts in the section. A blue Wii? (mix of Wii and Wii U icon)

    +1 from me. Even if stuff like Nintendont works on vWii and Wii U someday, i assume there would be different approaches how they work and how they will be installed. So having an area for vWii only and Wii U only would make it better for searching and for supporting.

    that's strange, I don't get notification anymore when someone call me.

    I currently don't see the issue, we could just rename ALL the WiiU hacking to vWii.
    There's less than 10 relevant WiiU subject.
    We will probably move/separate the wiiU when there is actual WiiU mode scene/homebrew.

    As for vWii and Wii, that's right most of the homebrew are shared and should be in Wii only (like nintendont ! that's not a vWii homebrew and should be in USBloader section).
    vWii hacking section should be related to vWii only (cIOS for vWii, NAND dump for vWii ... hey that's all !)

    Cyan,
    Tagging does seem broken but if you copy the name with the link attached I think it triggers it.
